The "Draft Teddy" movement at the 1968 DNC succeeds after EMK allows it and Eugene McCarthy releases his delegates to him. He's nominated at age 36 due to sympathy for him after RFK's assassination. George McGovern is nominated for VP.



Fmr. Vice President Richard M. Nixon (R-CA)/Gov. Spiro Agnew (R-MD): 32,922,886, 42.9%, 308 EVs
Sen. Edward M. Kennedy (D-MA)/Sen. George McGovern (D-SD): 33,327,400, 43.4%, 185 EVs
Fmr. Gov. George Wallace (D-AL)/Ret. Gen. Curtis LeMay (R-CA): 10,558,218, 13.7%, 45 EVs

EMK Al Gored this (lost EC while winning the pop. vote by 0.5%)

This was a weird one.

2016. Computer on hard. Playing as Independent Donald Trump for the lolz.

The Democratic primary was pretty funny to watch. It was a hilariously closely divided race between Hillary, Biden, O'Malley, and Cuomo the whole way. After the last primary Cuomo and Biden dropped out and endorsed O'Malley.



Businessman Donald Trump (I-NY)/ Former Gov. Sarah Palin (R-AK)-  25.5%; 241 EV
Gov. Chris Christie (R-NJ)/ Sen. Mike Lee (R-UT)- 27.8%; 162 EV
Gov. Martin O'Malley (D-MD)/ Sen. Mark Warner (D-VA)- 26.5%; 135 EV
Mayor Michael Bloomberg (I-NY)/ Sec. Def. Chuck Hagel (R-NE)- 10.6%; 0 EV
Former Gov. Gary Johnson (L-NM)/ Former Gov. Jesse Ventura (L-MN)- 5.2%; 0EV
Dr. Jill Stein (G-MA) / Ms. Cheri Honkala (G-PA)- 4.5%; 0 EV

The race was thrown to the Republican House which elected Chris Christie. It's sort of a shame the game doesn't say who the Democratic Senate picked as VP since they would only have a choice between Sarah Palin and Mike Lee.

Franklin D. Roosevelt - 10,199,565 33.9%; 67 EV
William Lemke - 674,327 2.2%; 0 EV

I also won every state in 1872 but that was probably due to the fact that I was an idiot and accidentally kept the Liberal Republicans off when I was deciding who to play as.

John Quincy Adams II/Samuel Tilden - 52,651,682 90.9% 367 EV
Ulysses S. Grant/Henry Wilson - 5,280,025 9.1% 0 EV

I was playing 2000 as Lamar Alexander whom wins the Iowa and New Hampshire Primaries as well as getting a large majority of the states in Super Tuesday. It was very close in several states because of Donald Trump running as a reform candidate with Jesse Ventura but because of them, I was able to win against Gore in a landslide.


Fmr SOE Lamar Alexander/Fmr Speaker Newt Gingrich: 397/45.3%
VP Al Gore/Sen. Joe Lieberman: 141/39.3%
Mr. Donald J. Trump/Gov. Jesse Ventura: 0/15.6%

Scenario: (Played as Trump - saved up $$$ and did a late ad blitz that was much more favorable than expected) Recordings are leaked right before the election that reveals Bill and Hillary Clinton working with Russian spies to rig the results, promising that if she wins they will enact favorable policies for Russia. Clinton stays quiet, refusing to drop out - hardcore Democrats still support in with hopes she drops out/impeached/ and Kaine takes over, but the vast majority of independents and moderate Democrats break with Trump.

Donald Trump/Jan Brewer: 73.6% Popular Vote, 535 Electoral Votes
Crooked Hillary Clinton/Xavier Becerra: 26.4%, 3 Electoral Votes

In a similar but older game, President Elect 1988, I won as Kennedy in 1960 with this map, although I lost the popular vote:




John F. Kennedy: 313 EV/49.4%
Richard Nixon: 224 EV/50.6%

Hubert H. Humphrey (Dem) - 20,054,968 47.8%; 327 EV  ✓
George C. Wallace (Rep/AIP)-  21,890,159 52.2% 211 EV


Goldwater Republicans managed to take over the 1968 RNC convention and nominate Wallace, also nominee of the AIP.

Wallace was trailing by double digits until a scandal broke in the final 48 hours. Despite losing, he managed to win the popular vote and carry states outside the south, beating all expectations.

The closest state was Michigan, which was decided by under 1,200 votes.

There was a huge fissure in the southern base, so much so Goldwater carried several states in 1964. In this scenario, Wallace and other pro segregation Dems switch parties as the national Dems become more about civil rights and left wing ideology.

Played Debs 1912 for fun, trying to get the 15% to get into the debates. Was at 14% and change on the last day, not leading in a single state, and was shocked to be faced with this on election day:



Turns out high momentum on the last day can net you basically 100% of undecideds, even if you aren't a really popular party in the first place.

Has anyone else had a problem on president forever 2008 where whenever you open the game, it makes you enter your confirmation code and email? I'm getting this problem and its incredibly annoying.

It is way too easy to landslide Bush in this scenario.  I might make a few adjustments for that.

Coming from behind in the Electoral College (while leading in the popular vote), the Midwest-based Harkin/Kerrey ticket defeats Bush/Quayle in a landslide, ushering in a new era of populist politics (and effectively killing DLC influence!).



Closest state was Michigan (45% - 44.9% - 10.1%).

Bush came third in Alaska and California.

What would happen if the Democrats and Republicans didn't exist? o_o



Johnson/Weld (Libertarian) 429 electoral votes and 55.7% popular vote
Stein/Baraka (Green) 103 electoral votes and 41.6% popular vote
McMullin/Finn (Independent) 6 electoral votes and 0.6% popular votes
Bloomberg/Hagel (Independent) 0 electoral votes and 2.1% popular vote

A few things hard to explain:

- Greens with over 60% of the vote in Texas
- Kentucky is the closest state, with both Greens and Libertarians at 47% popular vote
- Libertarians have over 70% of the vote in neighboring Indiana, Tennessee
- Libertarians have over 60% of the vote in Maryland, New Jersey
- other Northeastern states with large cities vote Green (PA with Philly, NY with New York, DC with Washington) or have a much closer margin (MA with Boston)
- Virginia goes Green? Richmond, Hampton Roads, DC suburbs...

Overall a fun experiment, tho
